The probe agency also noted that it could not trace many firms to which BharatPe had made vendor payments, as per the report. Grover, in his social media post, quoted the EOW as saying that the investigation of the case “is at an initial stage" and “replies from various authorities are yet to be received and examined." “Moreover, further course of investigation is in progress on the allegations levelled by the complainant in the present case," he further quoted the investigating body as stating.
In response to a complaint filed by BharatPe, the Economic Offenses Wing (EOW) has invited the couple to attend its office on Mandir Marg on November 21. After Grover claimed he had been stopped at Delhi airport on Thursday while travelling to New York with his wife, the development occurred hours after he posted a post on X.
